Sherry....listen to Carol. You have to know when to step back and not feel you're the only one in control of things. Maybe it's time for you to connect with your daughter, go out and do something just with her and not talk about
all the crappy stuff that's going on.
It's most important you connect, for the draw of doing older girl stuff can be stronger if you're turning the other way.
Yes, take care of yourself, delegate and look after your flare for now. Bandaid treatment, but maybe once g'ma is safe in her place, you'll realise some relief.
You're a tough and loving person.....but you have limitations and cannot control it all. I suggest you do some research and find ways to connect with your daughter...she must be scared for how you're feeling as well. Tough being 12, 13, 14, 15, 16....
Let us know how g'ma settles in.
